On arrival I learnt that my booking as well as the bookings of International collegues,....were wrong. This caused panic for some. On our way to our rooms, we found that only one lift was working......for four days we climbed up and walked down stairs from the 8th floor to others further down...if we didn't, we would wait forever and often...

Checked in at the hotel after an 8 hour flight. 2-3 reception staff were handling a single customer and I was standing at the reception waiting to be attended. A welcome greeting and a smile from the staff would have been more than relaxing which somehow lacked. We were checked-in in the room facing the construction site. Asked to be... More

We stayd in Holiday Inn Sandton just for one night, but it was a good experience. The service was friendly, room was clean and quiet, and the breakfast was good. The shuttle service to Nelson Mandela Square was nice - it is not that far but it wasn't the nicest of walks.
